|I'm happy with how well the insert is hidden by the pattern.|
I also added some of the blue velvet trim to the sleeves. I'm not sure about the look or the placement, so I may or may not keep it there.
Also, I just found out about a free 1812 event happening east of D.C. at the Riversdale House Museum at the end of August. I think I'll take the kids and go! I don't have Regency outfits for them yet, but do you think people would notice if I put them in their 1860s clothes??? My daughter's Boone dress spans quite a few decades, but my son's outfit is definitely 1860s. I don't have any Regency boys patterns. Any suggestions?
I have also been thinking of redoing my Regency long stays. I think the main problem was that they were too long and that I need to shorten the busk. I would dearly like to take a Burnley & Trowbridge workshop on the 1810 stays... maybe next year if they offer it.
